saving to 3d pdf

Is there a way to stop TC randomly rotating textures, when saving to 3d pdf.
 This is just an example
the texture is a wrapped image - with an auto plane wrapping  which seems to work in TC but as soon as I save to 3d pdf ,TC has fun.


the roof is constructed with roof slabs. But I have had problems with other objects too.

I believe it's something with TC 2017, i do remember this rotating every place there was an mitered roofslab.
The ide'a is that the pdf take in the fault, and not what is TC's workaround for that problem, before they got it fixed.

I get bored of it and start to just add an 1 mm solid on top of the roofslab and attach materials to that. (WP by 3 point), but if possible i did make them as roof first and give material before i used convert to roofslab on the roof's, most of the times it then come out correct

Attached is from v 2018 as for some reason i dont have LW or RedSDK in v 2017 anymore, and i dont care to reinstall or whatever to fix it :)

Rooftiles is with Autoplane scale set to 1 and pic. is scaled up and you can see 5 roof slabs in the Picture

Thanks Torfinn, I did use a roof - converted to a slab.
As soon as I add nodes to a roof slab - I get the skew tiles. with a normal roof the tiles are upside down in the 3d pdf.
I will try exploding before saving to see if that helps. Although it happens with other objects too.

Upside Down
Guess that is because a roofslab go from top and downwards, a roof from bottom and upwards.
At first it changed side for material automatic when converted to roofslab, not anymore.
On the roof with "overhang" there is added extra nodes, but dont make any difference in v 2018, on the small roof over windowfield a normal roof with double width and give material before converting and then just delete the 2 interior roofslabs, then i dont need to miter them and then rearrange materialside.
